Pear Crumb Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2011
If I could I'd give you all the stars in the sky! This was the Best Pie Ever! I doubled the topping and used canned pears. It was amazing!

Sour Cream Pound Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2011
Phenomenal flavor! I did add 1/2 tsp. of vanilla extract and 1/2 tsp. of butter flavor extract. Will have to adjust the cooking temp/time a bit for my stove next time but I highly recommend this wonderful and simple recipe!

Italian Dressing Mix

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2011
Love it! I've tried to separate the heavy ingredients from the herbs and measure them out separately. I think it's better to just do it the way the recipe reads. Just right the way it's written.

Rachael's Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2005
Made this for company. It is very simple, just a few ingredients and it came out moist and full of flavor. My guests loved it and I was happy to be able to spend less time at the stove and more time with my guests. Thanks!

Poppy Seed Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2005
These are now my all-time favorite Christmas cookie! They are tender and light and hold their shape perfectly. They are also very versatile. I used this same batter for thumbprints.

Pumpkin Pie Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2011
Amazing! I used 1 cup of applesauce instead of vegetable oil. I didn't add any water because I used fresh pumpkin puree` instead of canned. Couldn't be better!

Surprise South Beach Mashed 'Potatoes'

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2005
I like any dish that doesn't leave me with "emotional baggage" after eating it. Just be sure to drain it really well so it doesn't come out too thin.

Banana Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2010
Followed JIVE TURKEY's recommendation and split the batter into two loaf pans (plenty of batter for each). Turned the temp up to 375 instead of 350. They both cooked perfectly in 47 minutes.

Simple White Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2011
The recipe is simple. The taste is exceptional. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I was looking for a more rounded, smooth top to make cupcakes that look like balloons. The tops of these were, as other reviews remarked, gritty looking like cornbread. The tops also broke and cracked when being removed from the pan so I was not able to frost them smoothly. This was the BEST tasting of all my test batches and won hands down in my taste tests. It was just not functional enough for my purposes.

Sawmill Gravy

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2006
Easy, excellent, a classic. I would suggest, however, eliminating the salt from the recipe. The sausage (or the bisquits the gravy will eventally top) typically have plenty of sodium already.

Old Fashioned Paradise Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2011
Next time I'll add a bit more spice. I put the cream cheese mixture in the pie crust and refrigerated it while I mixed up the other two. Came out just right.

Spicy Pear Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2005
Made these for a Christmas baking buffet. They are a more refined, adult cookie than say a traditional chocolate chip and were very popular. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is they don't travel well (they stick together) and the lemon glaze could be more appealing visually, perhaps make it a bit thicker. Wonderful flavor!

Chicken Claridge Stew

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2005
This dish was easy to make due to its "on-hand" ingredients. However, I was hoping for better color, texture and overall flavor from this dish.

Cream Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2011
I was looking for a recipe that would turn out smooth rounded-top cupcakes. This was the recipe to do that. Unfortunately, it did not win in taste tests. I increased the vanilla by 1/2 tsp. and decreased the salt by 1/4 tsp. It was still too salty (thought I had used salted butter until I remembered this recipe doesn't call for butter). If I make this again I would drop the salt some more and increase the sugar to 1 Cup. They looked lovely and frosted nice and smooth but they didn't taste all that good.

Portobello Pizza

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2005
Perhaps I undercooked them but the mushroom was still quite cool, as was the sauce (leftover and taken from the fridge). I ate it out of my hand, like a piece of pizza and may have found it's texture to be better had I used a knife and fork. I shouldn't rate it so low, sounds like I just didn't get it right.

White Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2011
While there is no question this is a delicious tasting cookie I can't help feel something is incorrect in the directions/ingredients. The dough, without pecans and only 3/4 C. ea of the sugars, was so dry and would not stick together I had to check to be sure I hadn't missed a wet ingredient somewhere. It was so tough I could not use tablespoons but had to roll the dough in my hands to create a round-ish shape. By the end of the second batch I ended up with 2/3 cup oats and chips leftover in the bowl with no dough to hold it together. I could make them again for the taste but I don't feel like trying to figure out what to adjust so I'll just forget this recipe. Thanks anyway.
